Did any one actually think ke jis dal pe sabka muh ban jaata hai that is so damn important ke uske bhaav pe Bihar ki satta banegi ya tootegi..!!
With the increase in dal prices across the nation, opposition party yani anti BJP waale have started blaming PM saheb and the central government. Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar thunder at every election meeting that dal prices are shooting up because of the Modi government’s policies.
And many voters in Bihar, in the middle of staggered assembly elections and at a current scenario of Rs 200 a kilo of Dal, seem to be in agreement.
It is an issue that affects not just the poor but the more vocal middle class too.
With hardly a week to go for the third round of the Bihar elections, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and RJD leader Lalu Prasad are going hammer and tongs against the BJP. Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and RJD activists say they are playing the “dal card” against the BJP-led alliance in what is expected to be a tough contest for the 243-member Bihar assembly.
Sensing trouble, the BJP and LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan — who is also the agriculture minister in the Modi government — and others in their camp began damage control by blaming the Bihar government for the state of affairs.
Paswan has been downplaying the issue of rising prices. At the same time, he has promised to provide cheaper dal if the BJP-led alliance wins in Bihar.
Lalu Prasad says this is how the poor have been deprived of pulses. “Modi has taken away the ‘dal’ from the poor man’s dal roti.”
